Learn more about the closure of Neighbourly Beta

Why is Neighbourly shutting down?

We launched Neighbourly as a Beta app to connect you with your neighbours and make sharing local information more human and helpful. As a community, you've come together to celebrate local festivals, shared crucial information during floods, and answered over a million questions.

But the app hasn't grown like we had hoped.

In these difficult times, we believe that we can help more people by focusing on other Google apps that are already serving millions of people everyday. We plan to take the lessons learned from Neighbourly and use them to improve our other products. If you want to keep sharing your local knowledge with your neighbours, we encourage you to become a Google Maps Local Guide.
